On March 28th many of Statendam’s officers watched the Scotland vs. Netherlands World Cup Qualifying match. Football/soccer games are very popular with many crew members on board. Watching the games as a group becomes even more exciting when the football matches are between two different nationalities that are represented on board. Both the Scottish and Dutch officers dressed in festive attire to cheer their team on. Several of the Dutch officers were unable to find orange clothing, but refusing to watch the match with no orange on, decided to wear their life jackets! Now that is team spirit! It was a great game and enjoyed by all … well maybe a bit more by the Dutch since they ended up winning 3-0.
